How much money would immortality be worth? If you guessed "quite a lot," you're probably close. In legend and history, kings and emperors have splurged fortunes trying to obtain the elixir of life and cheat the grim reaper.
TOKYO -- A team of Japanese scientists have developed a flying rescue robot with a device that can open doors to enter buildings hit by earthquakes or accidents. The robot was developed by Hideyuki Tsukagoshi, an associate professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and his fellow researchers.
Do you think ambition(conquest/struggle for power) is a purely human trait. If for instance say a sentient AI was granted free will and allowed to...
Could astronauts one day be printing rather than building a base on the Moon? In 2013 ESA, working with industrial partners, proved that 3D printing using lunar material was feasible in principle. Since then, work continues to investigate the technique.
Robots have been working in disaster zones since 9/11. They can reach remote and dangerous locations and operate in places people can't go, including the rubble of the Fukushima nuclear power plant. So it seems a natural step to think about if and where robots could help in a medical crisis like the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
As cheap cloud computing services erode IBM's traditional hardware business with alarming speed, the company finds itself facing an uncertain future. If only there were some clever machine it could turn to for advice.

The other day I created a Google+ album of photos from our holiday in France. Google's AutoAwesome algorithms applied some nice Instagram-like filters to some of them, and sent me emails to let me have a look at the results. But there was one AutoAwesome that I found peculiar.
Aquí podemos ver el futuro dentro de 50 años como mucho, si apostamos por el grafeno.

A group of University of Washington researchers showed a year ago that brain-to-brain interfacing is possible in real life. Now, they're back after conducting a more thorough experiment, proving that their initial success wasn't a fluke. This time, the team performed tests using not just one pair, but six people divided into three pairs: one receiver and one transmitter.
I can't help but think, however, that the advance of computerization and automation is going to wipe out the subwork of humanity-the dull pushing and shoving and punching and clicking and filing and all the other simple and repetitive motions, both physical and mental, that can be done perfectly easily-and better-by machines no more complicated than those we can already build.
